The Target Units for each of the respective tranches is set forth in Exhibit A . Subject to Section 2.1(b) and (c), the amount of Units within each tranche that vest shall be based on  the vesting percentage of the Target Units for such tranche, as shown on the Performance Vesting Matrix on Exhibit A .

(For example, if EPS Growth for the first Measurement Period is negative, vesting of both the Units for the first and second tranches shall be measured based on the EPS Growth for the second Measurement Period.

(See Exhibit A for an example). If accelerated service based vesting is triggered by Section 2.2(c), there is no reduction for early  vesting.      2.2. Service Requirements . The service requirement for vesting shall be satisfied as set forth in Section 2.2(a)  or accelerated under Section 2.2(b) or (c), and any Units which are vested for purposes of the performance  based vesting requirements in Section 2.1 shall fully vest as of such event:            (a) Participant has been continuously employed by the Company or a Subsidiary through the Settlement  Date. (Participant will be deemed continuously employed notwithstanding any unpaid leaves of absence if such leave of absence is in accordance with the Company or Subsidiary’s sick leave, family leave or military leave policies or that otherwise is with the prior written approval of the Company or its Subsidiary and such leave continues only for so long as the Company or its Subsidiary has agreed and occurs only in accordance with the terms and conditions as have been required by the Company or its Subsidiary, in each instance as determined by the Company or its Subsidiary in its sole discretion); or           (b) Participant ceases to be employed by the Company or a Subsidiary prior to the Settlement Date due to  termination by the Company without Cause or by the Participant for Good Reason, or due to Participant’s death or Disability; or           (c) There is a “Change of Control Transaction,” as defined in the Plan.           (d) In the event the Participant voluntarily terminates employment without Good Reason or is terminated  by the Company for Cause prior to the Settlement Date, this Agreement shall terminate without vesting of any Units.

The parties agree to submit any dispute arising under this Agreement to final, binding, private arbitration in Portland, Oregon. This includes not only disputes about the meaning or performance of the Agreement, but disputes about its negotiation, drafting, or execution. The dispute will be determined by a single arbitrator in accordance with the then-existing rules of arbitration procedure of Multnomah County, Oregon Circuit Court, except that there shall be no right of de novo review in Circuit Court and the arbitrator may charge his or her standard arbitration fees rather than the fees prescribed in the Multnomah County Circuit Court arbitration procedures. The proceeding will be commenced by the filing of a civil complaint in Multnomah County Circuit Court and a simultaneous request for transfer to arbitration. The parties expressly agree that they may choose an arbitrator who is not on the list provided by the Multnomah County Circuit Court Arbitration Department, but if they are unable to agree upon the single arbitrator within ten days of receipt of the Arbitration Department list, they will ask the Arbitration Department to make the selection for them. The arbitrator will have full authority to determine all issues, including arbitrability, to award any remedy, including permanent injunctive relief, and to determine any request for costs and expenses in accordance with Section 8.6 of this Agreement.  The arbitrator’s award may be reduced to final judgment in Multnomah County Circuit Court. The complaining party shall bear the arbitration expenses and may seek their recovery if it prevails. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, an aggrieved party may seek a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction in Multnomah County Circuit Court to preserve the status quo during the arbitration proceeding.      8.8. IRC 280G Adjustment . If the benefit payments under this Agreement, either alone or together with other payments to which the Participant is entitled to receive from the Company, would constitute an “excess parachute payment” as defined in Section 280G of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), such benefit payments shall be reduced to the largest amount that will result in no portion of benefit payments under this Agreement being subject to the excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of the Code. The determination of which  benefits to reduce shall be made by the Participant, provided the Company’s accountants confirm that such reduction satisfies the requirements of this Section.      8.9. Entire Agreement . This Agreement and the Plan embody the entire agreement and understanding of the parties hereto in respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all prior written or oral communications or agreements all of which are merged herein. There are no restrictions, promises, warranties, covenants, or undertakings, other than those expressly set forth or referred to herein.      8.10. Repayment Obligation . Participant’s eligibility to shares of Stock under this Agreement is based upon the Company’s achievement of the performance levels determined pursuant to Exhibit A . If after shares of Stock are issued to Participant, it is later determined that performance level as compared to the Peer Group changed as a result of recalculations in the Company’s EPS Growth was not met as (i) a  Long Term Incentive Restricted Stock Unit Agreement Page 8 of 11

The Peer Group institutions are ranked and assigned integer numbers with the highest performing institution receiving a ranking = 1. To determine the EPS Growth Peer Group Value (Column A), the Company’s rank is divided by the total number of institutions in the Peer Group (including the Company). The applicable vesting percentage (Column B) is determined based on the corresponding EPS Growth Peer Group Value, as shown in the matrix above. Examples : (a) The Grant Date is March 1, 2007. Vesting of the first tranche is measured based on EPS Growth for the  12 month-period ended December 31, 2007. The Company’s EPS Growth is positive and the Company ranks 5th out of 20. The EPS Growth Peer Group Value = 5/20 = 0.25. The applicable percentage for performance based vesting of the first tranche is 150%. First Tranche: 12,000 shares *1.50 = 18,000 shares. No payout until service vesting. (b) Same facts as in Example (a) above, except that the Company’s EPS Growth is negative. The 12,000 Units in the first tranche are combined with the 8,000 Units in the second tranche for purposes of measuring vesting based on EPS Growth for the 24 month-period ended December 31, 2008.  (c) Same facts as in Example (a) above, but Participant is terminated without Cause on September 15, 2008. For  January 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008, the Company’s EPS Growth is positive and the Company ranks 10th out of 19 (one institution in the Peer Group disqualifies). The EPS Growth Peer Group Value = 10/19 = 0.53. The applicable performance vesting percentage for the first tranche is 100%. Second Tranche: 8,000
